The French Porcelain Society’s Online Symposium
Celebrating John Mallet’s 90th Birthday
7–8 November 2020

J. V. G. Mallet’s achievements in the field of ceramics are many as proved by his copious bibliography. It is however, John’s ground-breaking work in the field of istoriato maiolica of the 16th century and particularly his focus on the most important Renaissance maiolica-painters of the period, which has to be acknowledged as a major factor behind the resurgence of interest in this fascinating type of painting on pottery.

Our international online symposium, over two afternoons, will focus on John’s main area of research, istoriato maiolica or ‘narrative ware’. This extraordinary pictorial language flourished in the lands of the Dukes of Urbino, whose humanist court inspired Baldassar Castiglione’s The Book of the Courtier and which was Raphael birthplace. The imagery created in Raphael’s workshop was such a powerful influence on istoriato, that it was once believed that Raphael and his pupils actually painted the wares, leading it to be called ‘Raphael ware’.

Most notable are John’s magisterial articles on Urbino istoriato. Applying the same method that art historians use for painting, he has been able to group stylistically many different istoriato painters, and give names to otherwise unknown important maiolica masters, including: The ‘In Castel Durante Painter’, ‘The Master of the Apollo Basin’, ‘The Milan Marsyas Painter’, and ‘The Painter of the Coal Mine Dishes’. John also has written extensively on the painters active in the workshop of Guido Durantino, around the art of the great Nicola da Urbino, on Francesco ‘Urbini’, on Maestro Giorgio of Gubbio, and on Xanto—one of the most intriguing personalities in the world of ceramics, on whom John organised a ground-breaking monographic exhibition at the Wallace Collection in 2007. His catalogue of the maiolica in the Hockemeyer Collection in Bremen is a landmark of scholarship.

The symposium will give particular emphasis to the relationship between istoriato and graphic sources originating in and around Raphael’s workshop, 500 years after the death of the Urbino master in 1520. Reflecting John’s wide-ranging knowledge and interests in many other fields of ceramics, the symposium will also feature lectures on European pottery and porcelain.

The event is free and open to all, but donations are always appreciated. For more information and registration details, please contact the organiser Dr Elisa Paola Sani at FPSenquiries@gmail.com.

Online Panel | Race and the Boundaries of the Book

Posted in conferences (to attend), online learning by Editor on October 17, 2020

I’m especially excited about the prerecorded videos (most 6–8 minutes); it’s an interesting way to maximize the potential of this RBS online session and also extend the value of the event well beyond the confines of the original session. CH

Race and the Boundaries of the Book: Seven Early American Perspectives
Rare Book School Online, 20 October 2020, 5–6pm (ET)

A 45-minute panel discussion followed by 15 minutes of Q&A scheduled for Tuesday, 20 October 2020, 5–6pm ET, via Zoom. Owing to Zoom’s restrictions, this event is limited to the first 300 people who register. The event will be recorded and made available for viewing on the RBS YouTube channel.

Through video presentations of individual case studies, seven early Americanists zoom in on a range of bookish artifacts and employ critical bibliography to recover overlooked narratives about race from the historical record. Specifically, they examine how racialized and marginalized early American subjects speak through bibliographical concepts and formats. What can the materialities of textual artifacts tell us about the elaboration of racial identities? How does specific attention to African American and Indigenous readers and writers in early American literature and culture—a field that has traditionally privileged white subjects—gain traction by looking at formats, bindings, and paper surfaces on which writing and printing occur? Formats, the panelists argue, are everything but neutral containers. Following a chronological order, the video presentations examine the boundaries of “the book” and the complex richness of small and overlooked forms for recovering dismissed and erased readers, writers, and print artisans.

Rather than a traditional academic conference panel, the participants intend to create an engaging conversation by incorporating an innovative blend of pre-recorded video, focused analysis of specific material texts, and a live-streamed panel discussion of how their work engages with larger questions raised by the fields of early American literature and book history.

The panelists are Tara A. Bynum (University of Iowa), Alan Corbiere (York University), Michael Galban (Seneca Art & Cultural Center, Ganondagan State Historic Site), John H. Pollack (University of Pennsylvania), Phillip Round (University of Iowa), Michaël Roy (Université Paris Nanterre), and Derrick Spires (Cornell University). Steffi Dippold (Kansas State University) and John J. Garcia (Florida State University) are moderating the session.

The panelists have pre-recorded BiblioVideos in preparation for the panel discussion, which can be accessed here or by clicking on the titles below. They plan to summarize the argument during the panel, but the audience should watch the BiblioVideos in advance to prepare for their discussion. The videos are listed in the recommended viewing order below:

Online Conference | Ecologies of Paper

Posted in conferences (to attend), online learning by Editor on October 8, 2020

From The Huntington:

Ecologies of Paper in the Early Modern World
Online, 5-6 November 2020

Registration due by 30 October 2020

Presented by The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens, Ecologies of Paper in the Early Modern World will explore the transmutation, preservation, and loss of paper as a cycle of archiving and forgetting that defined early modern artistic practice, economic transaction, and political statecraft. Speakers will map paper’s various guises, its ability to retain meanings associated with its material origins, as well as its desire to conceal its former states or to encourage belief in a value beyond its material reality. Charting the journeys of early modern paper in drawing, print, and document, this program will not only restructure our understanding of paper’s importance in early modern artistic practice and political life but also reconstruct the governing roles of environment, place, and origin in modes of making and address. If you would like to receive a copy of the speakers’ papers for this event, please register here by October 30. All times are Pacific Standard Time (PST).

Workshop: Bringing Historical Maps into GIS
Friday, 4:30–6:00
Chairs: Erica HAYES, Villanova University and Kacie WILLS, Illinois College
This workshop will provide participants with the technical skills to align geographic coordinates to a digitized historical map in the eighteenth-century in order to create a georeferenced historical map. Participants will learn how to use simple tools like Map Warper, an open source image georeferencer tool, in order to overlay the digitized historical map on top of a GIS modern basemap for compar- ison and use in an interactive web mapping application. This workshop is ideal for scholars working with historical maps or interested in learning digital humanities GIS skills. Workshop participants need to bring their own laptops. No prior GIS or mapping experience is required. Contact the ASECS Business Office if you are interested in signing up for this workshop. Walk-ins are welcome if space permits but are encouraged to arrive early if they wish to participate in the hands-on activities of the workshop. Interested observers are also welcome if space permits.

The 37th James L. Clifford Memorial Lecture
Saturday, 11:30–12:30
Anne LAFONT, École des hautes études en sciences sociales de Paris (EHESS), Winckelmann Congo: Blackness in the Age of White Marble
Presiding: Melissa HYDE, University of Florida
This lecture will address the rise of African Art History— in the broadest sense— during the long eighteenth-century. During this period, notions of African art and its history were entangled with the idea of diasporic Africa or Blackness, as conceptualized by a diverse ensemble of European textual sources, most of them not concerned with art. The line of argument to be pursued here is that many of these early modern texts, ought, nonetheless, to be understood as a historical discourse on art— whether they describe African geography, natural history or commerce; narrate African history or catalogue its objects in Cabinets de Curiosités. Of course, these narratives, which are more or less connected with African material culture and ritual performances, eventually would be articulated in art theoretical publications properly speaking, as eighteenth-century authors such as abbé du Bos or Winckelmann began to include Africa in their ambition to write a comprehensive, comparative art history grounded on a climatic explanation of style. This approach to art history understood artistic style, form and content as products of the natural climate and atmosphere in which art was created. Recent scholarship has demonstrated the centrality of Whiteness to archeology’s emergence in the mid-eighteenth century. Adding to our understanding of the racial implications of whiteness and color in art history, this lecture will show, how, at the very same historical moment, Blackness was being constructed, both as a counterpart to Whiteness but also, more generally as a means of inscribing African rites and objects into the domain of European Fine Arts.

Adel ohne Grenzen? Identitäten und Repräsentation zwischen Königlichem Preußen und Herzogtum Preußen //
Szlachta bez granic? Tożsamości i reprezentacje w Prusach Królewskich i Książęcych
Deutsches Historisches Institut, Warsaw, 26–27 March 2020

Organized by Sabine Jagodzinski and Rahul Kulka

In dem Workshop werden vor allem kunsthistorische Fragen zum Adel in den beiden Teilen Preußens und dessen künstlerischen Repräsentationen, den Visualisierungen und dem materiellen Ausdruck von regionalen oder überregionalen Identifikationen und Loyalitäten zu den Höfen diskutiert. Außerdem interessiert die künstlerisch-architektonische Prägung seiner Handlungsräume. Im Zentrum der Betrachtung stehen die Entwicklungen nach dem Zweiten Frieden von Thorn 1466, insbesondere im Zeitraum von der Schaffung des Herzogtums Preußen (1525) über die Lubliner Union (1569) bis zu den Teilungen Polen-Litauens 1772/1793/1795.

Die Beiträge und Diskussionen werden simultan ins Polnische bzw. Deutsche übersetzt. Anmeldungen zum Workshop werden bis zum 16. März 2020 erbeten an: dhi@dhi.waw.pl.
